I have had a problem for a long time now and do not seem to be able to find a solution. I need to export drawings from AutoCAD v14 to Illustrator forartwork design. When Illustrator opens my DWG or DXF files, they are massively scaled up and I cannot find a solution to this. However, I can export to EPS BUT this gives me further problems. If I chose the option 'fit to page' the drawings are very small and all need to be scaled up after opneing in Illustrator. If I uncheck this option, my drawings appear correct to scale BUT I do not et all of the drawing. I have only noticed today, that after exporting to EPS, AutoCAD notes on its command line that the effective plotting area is something like '190.5 x 266.5' and this happens to be the size of the image that opens in Illustrator. How can I alter this effective plotting area? I have no option to do this in the EPS options window? I can change the paper size, but not the plotting area. I have of course tried changing the options of 'What to plot...' from the display to window etc. but I knwe already that this was not the answer as all my drawing was on the screen anyway. It seems to be to do with this effective plotting area I think, but how to change this?
